It was written by Hazrat Amir Khusro who is saying that he is in this world like a girl who is to be married off to Hazrat Nizam-ud-din Auliya and go to a distant spiritual land. Therefore his stay in this world is focused on preparing for that marriage and he wants to have the best spiritual beauty before he departs.
